Creating a ever-changing news section on a webpage

Hi guys

Im after some advise. Im currently doing a website for a football team and it requires a section just about upcoming events which will change every week.

I wanted to create a section in which I can have someone else to update this section without changing the main webpage or structure of the webpage.

I was thinking of having a text file embedded into an iframe to show events/news as they come. That way anyone can change the text file but not the webpage.

What do you guys think? Is this a good idea or is there another method which is proven to be much simpler.

Thanks.

Rob

Hey Rob, welcome to WW! The easiest way for something like this could be the incorporation of a free blog (e.g. blogger) into the page; or a facebook page. You can do that via an iframe, normal frame, or - even easier - via a simple link. That way you also separate access to the site and the part that is editable for everybody.

Another possibility is of course using a CMS that allows you to specify editor rights for individual pages - that is a standard thing for most CMS.

Thank you for you advise 'wolfadeus'... I had not thought of that but thanks for bringing a little light into my doubt.
